Hi,

Just now, Hardik has realized that he has joined Canonical 1 year back on 5th January, 2009. That means, He had completed one year!!! Hurray!!!  He told me that he could define this one year journey in just one word AWESOME!!!.

Wow!!! That’s great. Continue… I am wishing him great and exciting new year, Many More To Come…. Here is quote from Hardik on this occasion…

“It’s great to be part of this very unique company. I am still learning. Everyday is coming with new challenges and excitement. Working from home is very unique experience i learned from this company. Proud to be part of Canonical :)”

Hi,

I have to test  Pre-released Netbook with Ubuntu Netbook Remix (9.04), Now it’s known as Ubuntu Netbook Edition, that’s different story. So in hurry i started my download in Firefox. It was fine for me. But suddenly my friend called me to go for 3 Idiots, So i opened www.bookmyshow.com to book the ticket, but found very slow speed due to UNR download.  So i stopped it, booked ticket for 3 idiots, Bingo!!!

But, i have to also resume my old UNR download. Opps!!! When i pressed “Resume” button on Firefox Download Manager, It has thrown some error, i was not bothered about it, because it’s common for me. But this time i was more excited about to solve that problem. Just got the access of /bin/bash in mood of some hacking / shacking ;).

Here is  my  code snap shot”

I hope you would  have got my so called “Hack / Shack”.  That was so straight, not more then 10 seconds :). Anybody can test it for me, if we restart the machine? Are we able to start the download with same hack? Next lesson for you…

Now, time for 3 Idiots </p>

Canonical and Dell delivered Ubuntu Moblin Remix Developer Edition on Dell Mini 10v and that was announced during the IDF (Intel Developer Forum).

I just got Dell Mini 10v a day before. I just downloaded the UMR (Ubuntu Moblin Remix) image from dell download section. Burn it on USB. Boot Dell Mini 10v with USB, and installation will start. This is Developer Edition so don’t expect that everything will work. Installation will erase all you previous data if you are trying on your existing machine. Dell is first OEM who ships pre-installed UMR (Ubuntu Moblin Remix). More information is available here about Installation.

Here is screen shots of UMR direct from Dell Mini 10v. Of-course i have just completed this post from UMR :)
